An incredible lost show! Produced
by Jay Ward and Bill Scott ('Bullwinkle') and hosted by Hans
Conried, this show strings together silent movie footage and
overdubs comedy commentary. Also features the writers and classic
voice-over artists (June Foray, Paul Frees) from the producer's
earlier work. Really clever, but never became popular and is
today completely forgotten.

Maybe the humor was too dry for Sixties' audiences.
"I'm an old Jay Ward fan. I'm
a little taken aback by your statement that Fractured Flickers
is now completely forgotten. I have great memories of that show
and tell my kids about it ad nauseum each time we sit down to
watch MST3K which I believe to be closest to FF in spirit.
Does this imply that I may be
the only one who remembers "Sherman Oaks" and "The Minute Mystery"..."Brought
to you by the makers of Spitz Beer, the beer that made Milwaukee
famous simply because it's so much fun to spit." ???
